I must confess I am now getting rather puzzled.
It seems a small stone building was hit by two accurately guided 500lb bombs.
- there would not be enough there, from a direct hit, to distinguish between Zarqawi and a badly overdone shish kebab
We have a ‘first hand’ report of US soldiers covering his head and kicking sh*t out of him, that does not make sense, the US troops in the area would be amongst the smartest, they would have wanted to keep him alive.
We also have reports that the ‘action’ was down to Jordanian Intelligence, probably true, Jordan would like to send a message to people that blow up weddings in Jordan, are in for a hard time.
Being British, I have long said that the best way of dealing with terrorists is to feign their deaths, let them watch their funerals, and quietly convert their outlook.
Just the sight of Zarqawi’s pretty undamaged face, should be enough to frighten the daylights out of anyone he knows.
I have a feeling that the US has finally latched onto psychological warfare, if the Saudis found Bin Laden in a Pakistani hospital dying of AIDS it would confirm it.
